What Clients say About Us


I was very happy with Hercules and the way they handled my piano move. After a mixup with the original moving company I hired to move a piano just before Christmas, I contacted Hercules. They were able to schedule me The following Tuesday. Unfortunately the Tuesday became Wednesday, due to an illness with one of the movers. George contacted me on Monday to let me know, rather than Tuesday morning, which I appreciated. The movers arrived within the timeframe I was given and moved the piano both efficiently and professionally. I definitely recommend them they are the best Burlington movers in Simcoe County.


Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!


Absolutely professional, details such as lift it up and not just tip it over. Well packing, cover floor during the placing, clean and tidy.


The Hercules team was great! The were very helpful and were very careful when they were in my house when moving the piano into place. They even fixed a part on the piano that had been broken for ages. I would highly recommend them to move anything you need moved. Thanks Hercules!!


Chose because of availability and prices which were lower than other quotes received. These piano movers Vancouver arrived on time and were quick, friendly and handled the piano with care. Would definitely recommend.

Homeowner Toronto

Outstanding small moves service. The company exceeded my high expectations! The moving crew members were friendly, efficient, proficient and caring, and worked as a cohesive team.


I was very satisfied with Hercules Moving Company. They made it easy and stress free for us. They arrived on time and packed and professionally covered our furniture to go into storage, since we are in between houses. I was amazed by how they were able to efficiently pack and store a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, office and a gym into a storage unit where they organized everything to fit perfectly. This wasn't an easy job and I was 100% satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality movers. Thanks Hercules Moving company for helping us move!

Kavaleo Bram

We had never used movers before and did a lot of research before deciding on Hercules Moving Company. The Calgary movers showed up early and were ready to go on time. They worked quickly and diligently and moved our entire house in 6 hours. I was very grateful for not having to do the heavy lifting ourselves and that everything was moved without damage and in good time. I would definitely use them again!


The crew was extremely professional and organized. they kept us up to date about the arrival time and they took such great care of the piano while transporting. We are very satisfied with the work!


Very pleasant movers. Worked diligently without a break from 10 to 3. Would definitely recommend them.

Private User

These Burlington movers did a great job moving my wife and I out of our downtown condo. Took care of everything they moved, and did things quickly and efficiently. The quote itself was reasonable and compared well to others. Will use them again for future moves.


I want to express my sincere gratitude for the organization of the relocation of our office in Ottawa. Hercules office movers were very polite, neat and responsible. Packing, loading and unloading were logically adjusted, so I could relax and completely trust the process. Special thanks for the ease of communication: I was nervous, and there were problems with the concierge and the use of freight elevators, but these guys saved my day and behaved tactfully as real professionals. I can recommend this company to anyone who cares about quality of office relocation.


These guys really did a great job. Newmarket movers did not skimp on wrapping everything properly and moving all my sensitive and expensive equipment carefully. Call them for a quote and you won't be disappointed.


Hercules moved my piano from an old bungalow to the second floor of my place. At the old house, there was tricky stairs and front yard fence to navigate. At the new place, there was a tall set of stairs which they had to move this heavy piano up. It definitely looked exhausting, but they did a great job and I'm very happy with their service.

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.
